Lou in Scottsdale, Ariz.: What are you hearing about ABC's V?
Forget about hearing. We've seen the pilot, and on a scale of 1 to 10, we give it an 11. V is the best pilot we've seen in, well, forever. Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) is amazing. Scott Wolf (Party of Five) is adorable and charming. And you simply won't be able to take your eyes off Morena Baccarin (Firefly). It goes above and beyond expectations!
Virginia in Miami: Have you heard anything about the new sci-fi show that's supposed to come out in the fall, Flash Forward?
Don't be so quick to judge the show as being sci-fi. Flash Forward executive producer David Goyer says, "It's been interesting to see this show classified as a sci-fi show, and we keep saying, 'Is it? Really?' At one point I read someone's blog who said, 'Well, obviously aliens are the ones that caused the flash forward.' And I said, 'Really?' It's not necessarily even a sci-fi show."
Lorraine in the United Kingdom: Any chance of some Chloe-Oliver action on Smallville next season? I just love those two characters!
Sorry, no Chloe-Oliver gettin' together on Smallville this season, but they will continue to be awesome separately. We're hearing the big romance arc this season is Lois and Clark.
Eileen in Menlo Park, Calif.: Spill me some news on True Blood, especially about that gorgeous Jason Stackhouse.
True Blood star Ryan Kwanten tells us that Jason and his sister, Sookie, won't be separated forever: "There will be [a reunion between the Stackhouse siblings] and quite an electric one, too, where we gang up for the greater good."
Tim in Sarasota Springs, Fla.: When do we finally get to see this badass vampire Godric on True Blood?
We've been waiting patiently for this mysterious vampire-of-all-vampires too, and the wait is almost over. Godric (Allan Hyde) pops up in the July 19 episode, along with his lieutenants Stan (Eureka's Ed Quinn) and Isabel (Valerie Cruz). Valerie tells us, "Isabel runs with the Dallas vampires, but she kind of becomes friends with both Bill and Eric. And she likes Sookie. [Isabel] has a penchant for humans, and she's sensitive to this love story they have."
Lee in Terre Haute, Ind.: I need some True Blood info!
Carrie Preston, who plays Arlene, says, "The second-season finale is only two weeks after the end of the first season. Things get crazy in Bon Temps, Louisiana, I'll tell you that." Wait, Arlene doesn't die, does she? "Not so far!"
Jen in Wellsburg, W.V.: What's going on with Nate and Sophie on the upcoming season of Leverage?
We went directly to Nate himself, Timothy Hutton, for the scoop on this "office" romance. "Season two starts out with Nate and Sophie running into each other in kind of an interesting way that's been orchestrated by one of the five," the Oscar-winning actor told us. "And Nate learned something about Sophie's current life that he wasn't expecting, as it certainly impacts whether or not they're going to get together or not. By the seventh show of the second season, a lot gets determined about Sophie and Nate. It tracks in a rather interesting way." Fans of Nate and Maggie, however, shouldn't give up hope. The great Kari Matchett "is definitely going to be back," Tim said, and "we're going to be happy about that." So are we!
Tina in Australia: Anything new on Heroes?
We're increasingly certain that a beloved, original castmember is leaving Heroes for good before the end of the coming season. Care to guess who in the comments? As for the rest of the gang, Hayden Panettiere told MTV: "There's something called the Carnival, which is kind of the opposite of what the Company was." Oooh, so the Carnival is a place where freaks are welcome, à la that horrifying novel Geek Love? That could be interesting, but will a mainstream network show really be able to get all Flannery O'Connor grotesque? Would you want that if they dared? Our Pitch a Fix item is still open for your comments.
Jessica in Peshtigo, Wisc.: Will Lucifer on Supernatural swap out bodies like the rest of the demons, or will he be Pellegrino-shaped for most of the season?
We're told Lucifer will be entirely Pellegrino-shaped and that he'll recur throughout Supernatural season five. We're also hearing that Castiel has a major individual arc that coincides with the major arc for the season, and that's all we can share for now, but it sounds juicy, don't you think?
